A traditional market located next to the Shinsaegae Department Mall and crammed into one of Seouls major business districts. In my opinion, the market is not as tourist friendly or intriguing as some of the other markets around Seoul.Recommended for:

Come here on the weekend and be prepare to share the narrow streets with both visitors and vendors! Lots of shopping opportunities for local 'stuff' and foods here. Be also prepared by sight, smell, and crowd stimulations!Recommended for:

Though the original Great South Gate that was once the symbol of the city was torched by an arsonist a few years back, this old section of Seoul north of the river remains a great spot to visit for its gritty charm and maze of street markets and stalls, selling a little bit of everything.Recommended for:

A great place to just explore and go shopping. It was like a bizarre in India. The streets were packed with vendors... and even more importantly amazing street food. You can literally get lost in the maze there.

Namdaemun is known as the "Great South Gate" and is most recognizable by the large, ornate gate at its entrance. However, most people, Koreans and tourists alike, visit Namdaemun for its 24-hour market. It's the oldest and largest market in Korea, and if there's anything to be bought in Korea, you'll most likely find it here. It's the best spot in all of Seoul for buying souvenirs -- you won't find better prices or selection anywhere else.
